The Nokia "case" looks (from the pictures) to be more like a cover than a full case... my guess is it that it might attach by replacing the battery cover whereas the alternatives you mention envelope the entire device and add extra bulk. Personally I prefer the Nokia Case if it avoids adding any extra bulk, as all I want is screen protection when it's in my pocket and no, one of those plastic screen protector thingies isn't sufficient protection for what I'm talking about! :)

And Nokia should offer screen protection, if only for making the disastrous decision to drop the 770's hard cover! :)
